WILL DOUBLE TRACK
THE MAINJ.1ME U. P.
SEVENTY MILLION TO BE 8PENT
WITHIN FIVE YEARS FOR
DOUBLE TRACKING SYSTEM.
PORTLAND, Feb. 4. (Spl.) The
determination of the Board of Direc
tors of tba ilarrlman llnea to spend
$75,000,000 In double tracking the
western roada of the system and In
other Improvements, which has Just
been announced, means a great deal
to the Pacific Northweet. Honda are
to be Issued, it la expected, to meet
the cost of the bettermenta.
Tha double-tracking the main line
of the Union Pacific from Omaha to
I'ortland will add largely to the vol
ume of tonnage handled at thla port
for thla step Is necessary to take rare
of the constantly growing traffic that
seeks an outlet here.
The recent organir.atlon of the Ore
gon-Washington Railroad ft Naviga
tion Company was largely for the pur
pose of prosecuting the contemplated
Improvements, the old O. R. ft N.
having about reached the limit of the
total debr It could contract. It had to
call on the allied Northwest Interests
for more funds aa the work of double
tracking the road along the Columbia
River, much of the way through the
aolld rock, will be very expenalve.
Confidence In the future of the Pa
cific Northwest la shown to a marked
degree by the appropriations, voted
by tha Ilarrlman Interests. Judge
IOvett Is by no means a stranger to
this section of . the country, having
made frequent vlslta here alnce he
was put In command of the Harrlman
railroad lntereats. He knows what
the Northwest offers In the way . of
future traffic and the fact he la pro
viding for a big tonnage during the
years to come Is the beat evidence of
his faith In the opportunltlea and re
sources of thla region.

TO MAKE EXAMINATION
OF BIG STRUCTURE.
The suspension bridge across the
Willamette river at Oregon City Is

ment made Saturday by County Judge

It will give way. The engineer reports
that minor repairs should be made
to the bridge this summer, coating
about $3000, and these will be made
under the direction of the county
court Wblle Judge Beatle doea not
disclose the name of tbe bridge ex
pert, be states that the court's engi
neer Is one of the best In the North

HEALTHY CONDITION OF FAIR
All BILLS AND WARRANTS ARE PAID
Capitalization Increased From $5000
to $20 000 Improvements Or
dered Made In Time for
t Coming Event.
The annual stockholders meeting of
the Clackamas County Fair- Associa
tion waa held in the rooms of the
Commercial Club Saturday afternoon,
convening at 2 o'clock. The first bum-
pens of the afternoon was the appoint
ment of a credentials committee, as
follows: O. L Hedges, J. E. Jack and
The president's report was present
ed and read during the Interim given
the credentials committee. Principal
among the Items cited In the report
were these facts: . All business per
taining to the past year has been set
tled; all premiums and warrants have
been paid; we have a good standing In
We have made a number of Improve
ments within the. past year, all of
which have been paid for, among
which are these; New machinery hall,
new sheep barn, new poultry house
and equipment, new Judges' arena,
new double gates for the main en
trance, new secretary quartera and of
fice, new speakers' platform and new
fence around the camp grounds, at a
cost of $517.
At the close of his report the presi
dent wished to emphasize the point
that he considered much of the success
of the Fair to depend on the quality
of the man chosen secretary, and he
urged that care be taken In making
There were reports from both sec
retary and treasurer something nev
er offered before and something not
always required of public servanis---and
hi this Instance the reports were
voluntary and not required. These
reports showed an approximate profit
for the past year of '$1400. Changes
and Improvements recommended and
approved were as follower
To Install an electric lighting plant
To purchase and open a street from
the Southern Pacific to the Fair
Making needed Improvements to
the grounds at once so as to be in
ample time for the fall meeting.
Decision made to hold the Fair four
days instead of three.
That date of Fair be changed to the
week preceding that of the State Fair.
By the changing of tbe data of the
Fair It la believed that it will be pos
sible to secure exhibits that otherwise
would not come to Canby, as in that
case the -exhibit will be so close to
the grounds to be visited the follow
ing week that It will be easy to se
cure more exhibits.
It was decided to appoint the dif
ferent superintendents of departments
at once ao that they may consult with
the secretary as to the premium list
and as to premiums to be listed.
A permanent street for concessions
will be chosen so that local conces
sionaires may build permanent struc
tures If they so choose, A public
cloak room will be established and a
telephone pay station erected.
There will be an effort to Bell sea
son tickets again this year, tha sale
last year having proved a success.
The association appointed the fol
lowing committee to audit the books:
J. E. Hedges, Oregon City; Wm. Ev
erhart. Molalla; C .M. Walt, Canby.
There were 834 shares of stock rep
resented at the meeting, more than
the number required for a aoorutn
The meeting proved enthusiastic and
the Information Imparted by tbe re
ports more than satisfied those mem
bers who are Interested In the success
of the organization.
By an almost unanimous vote the
stockholders authorized the directors
to raise the capitalization of the as
sociation from $5000 to $20,000. This
will give the association an opportun
ity to go ahead and make the improve
ments needed to Insure that the Fair
shall continue to grow until It Is the
success that the magnitude of Clacka
mas county warrants.
In an effort to stimulate subscrip
tion to this Increased stork Issue
Messrs. George Lazelle, George Ran
dall, O. D. Ehy. M. J .Le, Chas. Walt,
John Lewelllng, J. W. Smith and O.

Meade Post No. 2 met In regular
business session at 2 o'clock Saturday
afternoon, with a full attendance.
Comrade C. Williams, of' Gladstone,
adjutant general, was present aa a
guest. Comrade Clyde, who Is a mem
ber of Meade Post but who has been
In California for several months. Is
home and was in attendance. Mr.
Clyde made a short talk on his many
experiences since he last met with the
comrades of Meade Post. - -
The Post decided to buy a stand of
arms for the post, to be used In
Decoration day services and In case
of emergency. Twenty guns will be
purchased by the post
The matter of the editorial printed
In the Oregonian of February 2 en
titled. "Pensions In the Senate" was
taken up and discussed. The article
In question attempts to get real cute
at the expense of the old soldier, and
the members of Meade Post resent
the "cuteness-" Members of Meade
Post set up no claim of being angels,
but as they are well along In years
they are sensitive In the matter of
having their brightness or honor ques
tioned especially by men who never
saw service, and who have Tittle k-nowl-"""
edge of what was suffered by the Boys
In Blue. Following Is the offensive
PENSIONS IN THE SENATE. .
President Taft has Intimated that
he will veto the Sulloway additional
pension" bill now. under consideration
by the Senate; and some of the Sen
ators are a good deal flabbergaated.
The House passed the measure by a
large majority, Democrats vying with
Republicans In the flapdoodle oratory
about the old soldiers and the duty
of the" Nation to provide for them in
their old age. Now the Senate blda
fair to repeat the cowardly perform
ance and pass the whole business up
to the President
If the President will veto this latest
and most indefensible pension grab,
he will make no mistake, political or
otherwise. - The average voter under
stands that the average politician In
Congress, In helping to pad and stuff
tbe already inflated pension roll. Is In
spired first by regard for himself and
last by consideration for the old sol
dier. The old soldier vote la the main
Influence behind the never-ceasing
willingness of Congress to give more
and more In pensions. - Is there to be
no limit or end to the everlasting
pounding away for more pensions?
The real old soldier is entitled to
reverence, respect and careful atten
tion from his neighbors and hla coun
try. He gets them. too. There is no-
complaint about him or a generous
pension for him If he earned It, or If
he needs It or even thinks he needs It
But the professional old aoldier, who
saw little or no real service Is entirely
too active In this pension clamor.
What duty , doea the Nation owe to
The Post voted unanimously In con
demnation of the sentiment expressed
in the quoted editorial. . After some
little discussion a resolution was for
mulated and passed as follows:
- "We as a Post defle the Oregonian,
its editor and publisher or any other
man or paper to produce a name, or .
company, or regiment, of any( soldier
drawing pension fraudulently. We as
a Post or as Individuals will be only
too glad to take up any ease of that
kind that can be brought before the
D. K. BILL,
poramander of Meade Post"
The ' members of Meade Poat feel
much aggrieved to think that tha Ore
gonian, a paper that the old aoldier .
has been taught waa a friend of those
who bore the brunt ot the long fight,
should at thla late day turn in and
traduce the defenders of the Nation.
